Title: Effects of different eddy covariance correction schemes on energy balance closure and comparisons with the modified Bowen ratio system

Author: Wolf, Adam; Saliendra, Nick; Akshalov, Kanat; Johnson, Douglas A.; Laca, Emilio;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Eddy covariance (EC) and modified Bowen ratio (MBR) systems have been shown to yield subtly different estimates of sensible heat (H), latent heat (LE), and CO2 fluxes (Fc). Our study analyzed the discrepancies between these two systems by first considering the role of the data processing algorithm used to estimate fluxes using EC and later examining the effects of atmospheric stability on discrepancies between EC and MBR. We found that EC correction algorithms disproportionately increase the magnitude of LE and Fc, and consequently have a strong effect on the Bowen ratio measured by EC.

Keywords: eddy covariance, modified Bowen ratio, flux correction
